Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2

Are you part of the one in every 100,000 video game players that suffer from small fleet syndrome (SFS)? If so, you aren't alone. Thankfully there is a cure. It's called Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 promises to deliver fleets that are four times the size of what you're used to. Conquer SFS by filling your fleet with massive Titan-class vessels fitted with powerful weapons. The cure for SFS will soon be yours when Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 rolls out its upcoming free "Massive Fleets" update for all players. Soon, you and some friends can clash your fleets together in one massive, explosive battle.

Common side-effects of Massive Fleets can include lower framerates, loud noises, and losing track of time. Other, uncommon side-effects include dry mouth and an increased appetite. In very rare cases, some players of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 experienced "heated gamer moments."

In Massive Fleets mode, the points cap for fleets in single-player skirmishes and 1v1 battles is raised from 1,200 to 4,000, allowing for truly battlefield-spanning force compositions to clash. In addition, it unlocks previously campaign-only ships such as the Imperial Phalanx and the Tyranid Ancient One for use in this mode, letting you bring the galaxy’s most terrifying weapons to bear against your opponents.

This is a fun-first addition, meaning a couple of things. Balance and matchmaking are still centered on the 1,200 point mode used for ranked play. While we expect there are a number of viable strategies in Massive Fleets, it is simply impossible to keep tabs on the infinite possibilities now available to players. Alongside AI games, friends can go against each other in 1-on-1 - we invite players to use our community Discord to find other admirals to challenge. The mode also requires a significantly powerful PC to maintain good performance in the most ludicrous scenarios.
